As one of the extremely rare deformities in the world, baby Tessa Evans, 17 months old, living in the town of Maghera, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland was born with a noseless deformity.
Having this rare form of deformity also means that Tessa is unable to sense scents, has no nasal cavity, but she can still cough, sneeze and catch colds. Though unlike the other kids, Tessa is always cheerful. Babies love to run, play outside and kiss the wind.
Grainne Evans, 32, Tessa’s mother, said that when she was 20 weeks pregnant, an ultrasound showed an abnormality on her baby’s face. Fortunately, Tessa’s health is stable and can still be born.
